I just finished using only a clear polyurethane finish and it brought out the beautiful colors of the wood just by itself (which I expected). I don't think I would try an oil first as I would expect that to cause issues with the adherence of the poly (however - I have not tried this).

Can I cut this piece straight down the middle to make two 19 1/2” pieces to join together?

FWIW The piece I received measured 6'2" by 38.5" (i.e., 1/2" short of the 39" stated depth). So if the 19.5" size is critical, be aware of this possibility.

Thanks, Jake so much for answering my question! In case you see this, does 'top coat' mean, for example, Waterlox finish/sealer?

I would lightly sand down the corners with 180-grit sand paper. Then I would wipe clean with a cloth and liberally apply mineral oil to all 6-sides. The wood will really make the block "pop" with color.

Actually, Home Depot must have not been able to get the 4' and 6' Sapele counter tops and upgraded me to European Walnut for the same price. Please beware that you need whatever you are going to use for a sealer ready when you remove the plastic seal because you only have 2 to 4 hours to seal it. This is a great solid product. You won't be disappointed. Great product I use for a reloading bench and a work bench.

Beautiful, perfect for counter or desktop
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Fantastic piece of wood. Use mineral spirits after you've cut it to size to bring out the gorgeous colours in this piece. It is heavy. I'm using it for a desktop in my home office and it is definitely worth the work that you have to put into it. The edges are squared, so you may want to round them if you're using this for a table.

Response from Jake-Hardwood ReflectionsMay 12, 2020
There is a markedly change in colours once you apply a treatment. Great work on the desk. HFAria
Beautiful colors
I absolutely love this butcher block counter top on my island, so I do give it a 5 star rating based on the looks and quality of the butcher block. The frustrating part was that it took three orders before I finally received it. The first (and then second) order came in damaged. The third order was shipped to store with no problems. I oiled the counter top with mineral oil as soon as it was installed, and this really brought out the richness and beauty of the red colors.

Using as a desk in home office
I have no experience with finishing wood, but did some research online and decided to sand this smooth up to a 220grit and then wetsand with Tung oil finish for about 7 coats. Wow this thing is really beautiful! I'm using it for a desktop in my home office and it grabs the attention of the whole room. I can't wait to finish up my project and maybe use these blocks in my kitchen since I have the confidence in using it now.

Product was well packaged to prevent damage. It cut easily to fit and the cut edges sand down nicely. And it turns a beautiful reddish color upon application of butcher block oil. Note - buy the oil with the butcher block. The oil needs to be applied within hours after removing the butcher block from the plastic packaging (likely to prevent splitting), and the written instruction informing the consumer about this are inside the plastic, so you don't see them until after you've removed the butcher block from the packaging.

Great wood, but beware of seperation
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
It's a great looking wood. Needs minimal work to get a nice finish. Took a star off because I had delamination issues with another Sepele block and am concerned the same problem could happen with this one.
